If you want to boost the economy in Andrews you need to build things that will keep people in Andrews. For example, a bowling alley, movie theater, or a family fun land. The only thing that making Andrews wet is going to increase is the number of drunk driving fatalities particularly amongst the youth of Andrews. No amount of economic growth is worth the chance of one of my family members being killed by a drunk driver. THINK ABOUT IT!!! I grew up in a "wet" small town and over a three year period I can think of 8 teens who died in alcohol related accidents and those are just the ones I can remember. Please, if for no other reason, please vote to keep Andrews dry for our teens sake.

I agree with you somewhat, BUT regardless if Andrews is a WET or DRY county, teens will drink. No matter where the beer is, they are going to end up finding it. Think about this for a moment, if they are drunk and feel that there is a need to get more beer, look where they are going to drive to. They are going to drive miles and miles to the nearest city/town increasing the chances of fatalities on the highway. If you want to stop youth drinking, that needs to start at home or through some other form of involvements or curriculum. There are a lot of hard workers who do want to come home and have a beer without driving all the way to Odessa. I for one, would LOVE to go out for drinks with my husband, but we can't because it is too much of a hassle to be driving here and there drunk/intoxicated/tipsy/buzzin g, whatever you want to call it. And say that we did go to Odessa and had drinks, we are putting others at risk by coming back home to Andrews after a night out in town. And please dont say "well, stay home and dont drink", because the majority of us have been doing so to avoid such a conflict. I say vote to have Andrews a WET county. I know I am.
